A gap in the strategic investment decision (SID) making literature shows little empirical research effectively distinguishing its effects on both context and culture. To investigate the role of context and culture in SID making practises, 9 Singaporean case studies were carried out. 3 Singaporean companies were matched equally across the primary, secondary & tertiary sectors to reflect contextual differences. The results show cultural attributes predominate over key contextual factors on certain aspects of SID making, specifically for the dimensions of intuition, power distance relationships and long term orientation. However, key contextual differences prove overriding in other aspects of SID making, such as financial expectations, flexibility in respect to financial targets, financial controls orientation and strategic approaches.
